DUESSELDORF, Germany (AP) - The United States will face Argentina in the final of the World Team Cup after Bob and Mike Bryan won the decisive doubles match Friday for the Americans against the Czech Republic.

The Bryan twins then rallied from a 5-2 deficit in the opening set for a 7-5, 7-5 victory over Berdych and Lukas Dlouhy.

Like most fans of history, I get a kick out of standing at a spot where something of historical importance once took place. It's an added thrill if I happen to be there on an anniversary of the event in question. That's why I was positively giddy last month to be at Rancho Camulos near Piru exactly 100 years to the day from the filming of the 1910 movie "Ramona," which was directed by the ...
It's clear we're in fantasyland early on in "Just Wright," when the New Jersey Nets play their home opener in front of a sold-out, raucous crowd on their way to winning the Eastern Conference championship. And the whole world - not just the sports media but also the trashy gossip magazines - is fascinated by the team's star player, Scott McKnight, chasing him around to find out who he's dating and speculating about what he'll ...
Given that "Shrek Forever After" is the first film in the franchise in 3-D, it's surprisingly flat - and we're not just talking about the look of it. This fourth and allegedly final installment in the series is lifeless, joyless and woefully devoid of the upbeat energy that distinguished the earlier movies - well, at least the first two. If "Shrek the Third" from 2007 felt tired, "Shrek Forever After" is practically narcoleptic. Brief bursts ...

We all know that perception often influences our decisions, yet we catch ourselves and become reminded that what we perceive isn't always what's really going on. With the constant barrage of information available in today's 24/7 world, it's important to not get caught up in the day-to-day market volatility and news headlines.
